Basically. A friend of mine was disqualified for a year. This was december 2008 until 2009. He then re sat the test and passed on Jan 09.

His partner is now insured on his car and holds a provisional. I am claiming because of the ban he can't be the one responsible for her?

Am I correct in thinking that she will need to sit next to someone else? Will this matter if the car is registered in his name? Does the owner need to be there type of thing?

Cheers!

So he lost his license and re-sat the test and passed? Why would he not be able to sit next to her? He has his license back and she is insured on his vehicle.

Edit - Just seen the post above.

Well I would check with the DVLA. The 3 years could be overall, or since you passed the last test. If it's the latter then 09 is not 3 years ago.

Looks like they will need to wait another year then.

I interpret that has having held the license for 3 years overall. I.e. you could have held it for 10 years, got banned, got it back, and be able to supervise immediately. Could be wrong however.....

Email DVLA and ask.

The still hold bit, to me suggest three years from last test. But you could interpret it anyway.

As he lost his full license and had to retake his test when he got disqualified, then that means he has not held a full license for 3 years..



If he was only disqualified that may of been OK...

To me it sounds like you must have held it for 3 years and still hold it when you're supervising...i.e. not be banned when you're supervising. Maybe that's just me :D

He isn't banned as I've mentioned. He got his license reinstated two years ago and still holds it to this day. If he had to supervise at the moment he wouldn't be a banned driver.

He got a one year ban... re sat the practical and theory tests. Passed the extended driving test and has been driving legally for two years now. Previously had been driving for over 30 years without any penalties or infractions of any kind.

Reads to me like that as well, doubt even a copper would know for certain.

Maybe it will say on his licence date test first passed?
